On this page I make notice of the latest updates to the site (new pictures etc.), tell something about interesting actual weather at my location, or about a performed chase.

June 15 2007:
I caught a classic supercell in the province of Flevoland yesterday! It was really slow moving, so ideal for chasing. I haven't encountered any severe weather, but it had a breath taking structure!
Elsewhere in the country severe weather did occur, causing damage and injuries. The city of Hoogeveen was hit by a powerful downburst or perhaps even a tornado.
The days ahead the unsettled weather continues, but severe weather isn't likely to occur during the first days. Besides, I will be heading to Brittany for a camping vacation! So no more updates in the weeks to come. Enjoy the weather, where ever you are!

June 12 2007:
During the last days many places in the Netherlands had to deal with strong to severe thunderstorms. Heavy rain, flash flooding, large hail and even an odd funnel cloud were observerd. I attempted a chase last Friday, but traffic wasn't cooperating, so we ended up driving from one traffic jam to the other. Today and tomorrow the atmosphere is more stable, but from Thursday on another round of strong storms can occur!

June 4 2007:
Added a new Photo of the Month
May 2007 was warm again, but not as record breaking as the previous months. Furthermore it was quite wet with near normal hours of sunshine. Spring 2007 became the warmest since records began back 300 years and this after the warmest autumn and winter as well!
June starts with pleasant summer weather. Later in the week the chance of a storm increases, so perhaps I will perform a chase!
I did see a nice storm last Thursday. It wasn't too spectacular, but I shot some nice photos of a rainbow. I will add these photos to the site in the near future.
